Thomas Tuchel left Chelsea on September 8, 2022, and Graham Potter took his place as head coach. We’ll talk a little bit about his plans.
Potter made 307 appearances as a left back in the Football League over 13 years. He also played in the Premier League for Southampton and in the Football Conference for Shrewsbury Town. He has played for England once when he was 21 years old.
But talking about the beginning of a career.
Potter got a degree in Social Sciences from the Open University in December 2005. The Professional Footballers’ Association gave him money to help pay for his education.
He was the football development manager for the University of Hull and the technical director for the Ghana women’s team at the FIFA Women’s World Cup in 2007.
Before going to Leeds Metropolitan University to get a master’s degree in leadership and emotional intelligence, he worked as an assistant coach for the England Universities Squad.
Strategies of Graham Potter
Graham Potter is known for putting together teams that play an attacking game with smooth passing when they have the ball and put on a lot of pressure when they don’t.
He has also shown that he can switch systems often depending on the opponents and the situation without hurting the identity and style of play of his team.
At Brighton, Potter mostly set up his team in 3-4-2-1, 4-4-2, and 4-1-4-1.
